Our waiter was extremely confused the entire time. We kept having to track him down to refill our water it got to the point where we just kept going inside to the bar to get our own refills. Also at the end when asking for a box for my food o had to go and find another waiter and ask for assistance.

We went here for breakfast while visiting Miami Beach, and we weren’t satisfied. The service was great. The food was very bland.

Loved the oatmeal. Had the carrot cake french toast as well, which is too big of
a portion size in my opinion. The atmosphere right along the beach is amazing!

Overall very disappointing experience. Food was not good at all- ordered a crispy chicken salad and I’m pretty sure it came with McDonald’s chicken nuggets cut up inside !! Was definitely not worth 17 dollars in the slightest. They then add 20% service charge to the bill when the service was really below average - nothing special at all- making it a disappointing but also expensive meal!

The waiter was amazing, my sisters and I went for brunch while on vacation! He was very nice and caring, but the other customers were way too loud. Laughing outrageously and it really messed up the vibe. The manager said they had asked them to quiet down as they have received multiple complaints about the noise however they only got louder. We ended up paying and leaving because yelling across the table for someone to hear you was just way too much. Food was hot and fresh but they killed the vibe.

Very casual atmosphere with outdoor seating over looking Ocean Road. Great eclectic menu.
I ordered the lobster pasta and was pleasantly surprised to receive a full lobster tail on a bed of linguine.
Waitress was attentive without rushing the meal

The food was great and reasonably priced. My only beef was that Miami Spice Brunch was only till 11am. What brunch finishes at 11am?
I was looking forward to eggs Benedict and bottomless mimosas but they were not available after 11 am. Very strange for Miami.

Outdoor seating is perfectly located with well-defined space and offering shade. Food was very good and portions were generous. We had the blackened Mahi-mahi sandwich, waffles, salad, and American breakfast - all great! Mimosas were great too! Service was well executed and overall the experience was exactly what we had hoped.

Seating inside was a bit tight. Waited 15/20 mins after we were seated to even have a waiter come introduce them selves which was after we asked 3 different people who our waiter was.we went for breakfast which was ok not bad at all. It’s a little loud not a quiet setting. Not to expensive.

The waiter was tentative but shortly after we ordered our food came out immediately. There was no period in between and we had just taken one sip of our bottle of wine. We finished our meals, which were ok, but had a full bottle of wine left. I think the waiters need to slow the pace down and let their guests eat.

The food and drinks were very overpriced and the waiting staff is awful. They take your order and give you your food and that is it. We had to ask three people for a check and finally someone came. They also add 20% tip automatically for bill (which is not deserved) in my case.

Great food and good service but if you sit outside you’re going to have to deal with people being loud and yelling and playing music right near your table. Obviously nothing the restaurant can control but sitting inside next time might be a little nicer.
